flybrain with amyloid beta peptides

This image shows a stained section of the fly brain with the amyloid beta shown in red.

The fly brain is half a millimeter across and contains approximately 100,000 nerve cells (green). The A-beta peptide forms plaques (red) that are linked to nerve cell death and behavioral abnormalities in the flies. Credit Dr. Stanislav Ott.
